Subject: RE: BS: US Government shutdown
Get ready to puke.
A tour group of WWII veterans showed up at the National World War II Memorial yesterday for a planned visit and found the large open space closed by the shutdown.
Somebody shouted "We're goin' in!" and the wheelchairs rolled.
Soon Tea Party Goddess Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann appeared with her crew. She threw her arms around one guy from World War II and said, "We want Americans to know that we're here to protect the lives and health care of these wonderful gentlemen!"
Then she gave him a big kiss.
(Another WWII group crashed the gates today. The GIs met with no National Park Services resistance on either occasion.)
